As Celtic gear up to face Alloa in the Scottish Cup tonight, all the focus of the transfer window is put on the back burner.
With an away tie against Barry Ferguson’s Alloa, the Hoops will look to do a professional job on The Wasps and book their place in the next round.
But as the Celtic manager tied up his fifth signing of the transfer window, Ferguson made a strange claim on The Go Radio Football Show as he says he still believes *Rangers squad is stronger than Anges, “I think as a manager if you’re wanting players, you want to get them in as quickly as possible. And that’s what Postecoglou has done.
“And it’s good to get them in through the door. Get them used to the surroundings and new teammates.
“And I’m sure they want to do a bit more business because Celtic do need players.
“I think if you look at both Rangers and Celtic squads, I still believe that Rangers are still stronger and I do believe that Celtic still need to make another one or two signings.
“But as a manager that’s what you want to do. Try and get your players in as early as possible in this window.”
With Ange now having at least two players for every position at Celtic (even before the signing of O’Riley), this is a rather strange comment to make by the former Oldco player.
But we all know where Barry’s allegiances lie so it really is no surprise.
